Jeffrey Burt, Assistant Superintendent

Mr. Jeffrey Burt is the Assistant Superintendent for the Milford Public School district. He joined the district in August 2015.

Mr. Burt has 25 years of experience as a professional educator and administrator in Connecticut and is well-versed in the evolution of education delivery in our state.  His career began in September 1992 as a teacher in the Darien Public School district.  In 2006, Mr. Burt took on a more progressive educational position and served as an assistant principal in the Montville Public School system.  From there, he became deeply involved in curriculum work as the Curriculum Leader in social studies in the Fairfield Public Schools, a position he held for six years.  Immediately prior to joining us in Milford, Mr. Burt served as Assistant Superintendent in the Vernon Public School system.

Mr. Burt received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of Wooster (Ohio) in 1991 with a major concentration in history.  He then received a Master of Arts degree in Education (Social Studies) from Columbia University in 1992, followed by a Sixth Year certificate in Administrative Leadership from Sacred Heart University in 2005.

Mr. Burt is a strong instructional leader.  He has led extensive curriculum development, and has worked tirelessly to develop multiple and continuous opportunities for staff to collaborate in the improvement of instruction and to engage in purposeful professional learning.  His work with principals and teachers in implementing the new teacher evaluation model has increased collaboration, and led staff to see the model as one of growth.

Implementation and use of technology across the district has been a key factor in Mr. Burt’s career thus far.

Communication and visibility are two of Mr. Burt’s greatest strengths and has been described as a strong collaborator and a ‘leader on the ground’ with a sincere, genuine interest in the students and the community he serves.
